Hi VB. WFN Forum and FTDNA are compatible and are not competitors.
- FTDNA is the testing company.
- WorldFamilies.net hosts project websites
- WFNForum is a site where project participants can discuss their project(s).
Discussion Forums at WFNForum are set up to correspond to project sites at WorldFamilies.net.
Project Administrators using our websites take results from FTDNA and pedigrees from WFNForum and post both on their project site at WorldFamilies.net We encourage the projects using WorldFamilies.net websites to include testing results from other testing companies, but the decision is really up to the project administrator.
Projects using our websites share their information.
FTDNA's site announces that they have 3045 surname projects. We host about 1/4 of those projects at WorldFamilies.net and WFNForum, while a number of surname projects use the simple webspace that FTDNA provides and many projects make their own independent arrangements. And - some projects have no website.
We will provide a project website to any project operating from Family Tree DNA, upon request of the project administration. I assume that your husband's surname is Lane. The FTDNA Lane project uses the webspace provided by FTDNA. Upon request from the Lane Project administrator, we will be pleased to provide a free website at WorldFamilies.net and forums here at WFNForum..
You'll find WorldFamilies.net at http://worldfamilies.net
Do a search for your surname of interest. The link in middle column will take you to the project's testing company and the link on the right hand column will take you to the WorldFamilies.net website (if we provide one)
